Took A Spin On The New Bike Lane

with 7 comments

As I posted on BFR, we have some new bike lanes in Richardson. I didn’t get a chance to ride one of them (south direction) until this morning. Like with the other bike lanes in town (posted here and here), we have to share them with parked cars. It’s not a perfect situation, but at least the city recognizes that there are different types of riders in town and makes efforts to accommodate them.

These lanes also help reduce traffic speeds on some of Richardson’s busy neighborhood roads.

Here’s a really shaky video of my ride (sorry I don’t have a proper camera mount):

Oak Cliff Bike Parking

We took a trip down to Oak Cliff to drop off some my wife’s pics for the Crave Show tomorrow. While down there, we decided to check out the Oak Cliff Art Crawl. At the event, we noticed a nice little, homemade bike lane on Tyler Street. Here’s a pic with some festival bike parking:

Full Bike Lanes – Grove Road

with 6 comments

I took a quick Labor Day spin this morning through Richardson, and on my way home, I picked a new route to explore. To my surprise, I discovered that Grove Road, just south of Arapaho was re-zoned with full bike lanes in each direction.

Since I typically don’t go this way, I’m not exactly sure how long these lanes have been here nor how far south they go. I’m guessing they are there to make the connection to the Arapaho DART Rail station. I have to say, this made my day. I’m hoping to see more lanes like this throughout Richardson.

EDIT: I’ve run across a news article about this. Go here to read. Apparently, Custer Road has this type of lane as well. I’ll need to check it out this weekend.
